Photographer's Note

One of my favourite photos - Caroline & Helen relaxing below decks on the Maria Assumpta during the Clipper Challenge in 1982 on the brig Cuidad de Inca (later renamed) from Edinburgh to London. Despite looking a bit crumby, the canvas hammocks were very comfy.

We anchored off Holy Island, but it was blowing a gale and with the pressure of the wind in the rigging we dragged anchors. Unfortunately we couldn't leave as there was a sand bar at the entrance to the bay, so we sat there with then engines on for 6 hours so we wouldn't go aground.

Scanned in from a slide, I've increased saturation, altered shadow & highlights and sharpened.
